New cars 2015
The motor industry is constantly developing and refining its products – something clearly evident from our best cars of 2015. Car manufacturers continue to employ lighter construction materials as well as more efficient and powerful engines and greater standards of luxury and comfort.
Chances are, a new car launched today will be lighter and more economical than the model it replaces, while still offering improved performance and more impressive equipment.
We only need look at touchscreen infotainment systems to see the march of new technology: these were once the preserve of the high-end executive saloon, but are now standard on many new cars. The same is true of sat nav, air-conditioning, reversing cameras and mobile-phone integration.
Take the new Toyota Aygo, for example: it's a small city car, yet it features a tyre-pressure warning system, USB connectivity and hill-start assistance as standard.
Other cars launched in 2015 include the new Mini hatchback and Mercedes C-Class, along with the third-generation Audi TT and the seven-seater Nissan X-Trail – all of which debuted to much acclaim. The ‘new’ Ford Focus and Nissan Juke may only be facelifts when looked at in detail, but they’re big sellers in the UK and have been much anticipated. Read on for our top 10 cars launched in the UK this year.
